For many years it remained as a forbidden and hidden country since it was opened in 2008 remained as a restricted region for foreign visitors. The good reasons, to control the flow of travelers to preserve and conserve its natural pristine environment. The lodges around Tsum villages with limited accommodation for large groups of trekkers, the other reason due to close border with Tibet / China further north from Mu Gomba area.
Every village based on the itinerary for overnight stops, do have electricity with hydropower, and some places with personal solar power where guest can charge their electronic gadgets like cell phone, laptop, etc……..on paying some fees per hour of each item.
Very limited places, in Gorkha town, if the driving route passes the area, or in Dhading Besi. The best is to change your money in Kathmandu for your conveyance. As you are trekking on remote areas of Nepal Himalaya, but to change cash of foreign currencies, where very few lodges on the route may accept to exchange into local Nepalese rupees. But no chances or facilities for ATM or other credit cards besides Kathmandu or on major towns on both way drive.
The chances are small and rare, as the altitude gains gradually by the time you reach the Nile or Mu Gomba, where you will be well acclimatized by then. However, some people might catch a slight headache from altitude gain, it will soon recover having rest, drinking enough water that helps to acclimatize from the symptoms of AMS or altitude sickness. Our itinerary days with overnights stop helps to support acclimatization before reaching much higher destinations. For serious conditions, the sick person needs to be brought down to lower areas like Jagat or Arughat village as well back to Kathmandu, by fastest means of transport either hiring a local jeep, the best calling for helicopter service to reach the nearest and best place with medical facilities and hospitals.
As you are trekking to the most remote part of the Himalaya, where facilities of good accommodation and food are much limited. From the village of Jagat, the lodges are very simple and basic, more of homestays like accommodation and food. For this reason, one needs to carry warm sleeping bags and some snacks, like chocolate, biscuits, cookies, or dry fruits. The rooms are neat and clean with common toilets and baths, the foods with a limited menu like a noodle, memo’s/dumpling either stuff with meat/vegetables, fried or plain boiled rice with mild vegetable curries served Dal the lentil soup of various types. Chappati (unleavened simple fresh bread), Tibetan bread, or Indian bread Puri / Paratha and Pancakes are available.
Due to the nature of rough road conditions, after leaving the main highway towards Arughat town and Soti Khola. Using comfortable coach or four-wheel drives like jeep or land rover for mountain and hilly roads.
